The Conversation Groups Program has been an American Language Institute standard for more than 20 years. It aims at promoting English conversation between USC’s international and native English-speaking populations. This FREE resource is an excellent way for international students to supplement their studies; it provides a venue in which they can practice their growing English skills with a native English-speaking USC student in a casual environment. Past participants have reported an improvement in their English speaking fluency, a comfort in interacting with English native speakers, and a higher level of confidence in the English language.

Spring 2022 meetings are held both in person and on Zoom, are 50 minutes long, and are capped at 5 students per group. Students may attend as many sessions as they wish; there is no limit to the amount of sessions a student may attend. Students may attend back-to-back sessions but only if the second session does not have five new students in attendance.

Please note, the program is open to all international students; however, in the event of overflow, priority will be given to current ALI students.
